Mickey Harte has made five changes to the Tyrone team, who drew with Derry on the first day of the season for Sunday’s Division One match with All-Ireland finalists Mayo. There is also the re-appearance of All Star Seán Cavanagh, named on the bench.

Debutants Emmet McKenna and Tiernan McCann come in at wing forward and wing back respectively, while Colm Cavanagh, centrefield, Peter Hughes, wing forward, and Ronan McNamee at corner forward also start.

Ronan McNabb, Danny McBride, Niall McKenna, PJ Laverty and Patrick McNiece make way for this re-run of last year’s All-Ireland semi-final.

Mayo make just one change from the side that lost narrowly to Kildare last week, with Jason Gibbons replacing the injured Tom Parsons at centrefield.

Kevin McKernan returns after suspension to Down’s team for tonight’s Division Two match against Armagh. He comes in for Gary McArdle.

Derry have made three changes for their trip to Killarney – the venue was yesterday switched from Tralee – to play Kerry. Niall Holly, Kevin Johnston and Ciarán McGoldrick replace Patsy Bradley, Ciarán McFaul and Benny Heron.
